My Son is WWOOFing!

My oldest son graduated college and is now traveling the world.  How is he able to do this?  He’s WWOOFing.

WWOOF is a world-wide network of organizations that link volunteers with organic farmers.  It’s an exchange in return for volunteer help, WWOOF hosts provide room and board.

And it’s a way for young people to see the world.  My son flew into Berlin last week–he’s going to be working on a bee farm.  From there he’ll going to Switzerland to work on another farm and to see the Alps.  In August, he’ll be flying to Peru.  In total, he’ll be gone about a year.

What an educational and amazing trip! And I’m sure–loads of fun!
